Review: Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream

It's the same old story every winter – I'm always looking for a simple, soothing moisturiser to stop my skin from dehydrating. This year I've been using Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream to see if it's up to the job. 

Pai is a UK company with an ethos of transparency. They use only 'clean' ingredients and list every component in their formulas in plain English rather than chemical formulas designed to baffle us. All products are certified organic by the Soil Association

This moisturiser has a very mild, fresh scent that I'm struggling to describe – a bit like a refined Twinings herbal tea. Lovely, elegant and relaxing. 

The texture is that of a water-based cream. It's not oily but spreads easily across skin and sinks in beautifully. I'm prone to spots and dehydration and my skin can easily feel parched. This moisturiser packs a double punch with chamomile providing matricine and azulene; and rosehip  full of omegas and antioxidants. On days where my skin is doubly dry I layer over a facial oil or mix some with it. It leaves my skin ready for makeup and hasn't made me break out. 

The only thing I've not liked about it is the bottle. It's glass with a pump dispenser and I found it stopped working when the bottle was still half full. I've had to take the lid off and wiggle the tube around inside every time I use it. The bottle opening is too small for my finger so I'm left pining for the last few applications of product. I'd like a tube that's double the size. 

Pai Chamomile & Rosehip Sensitive Skin Cream is available at paiskincare.com. They often have good offers and it's free postage! Have you tried any Pai products yet? 


  1. Pai is one of my favourite brands, I haven't brought the moisturiser in a while because the frustration with the packaging.

  2. Nice review - this is a quality skin care line. I try to keep using natural and organic skin care products to have beautiful skin with the best ingredients. I think that's the best way to maintain healthy skin as we age. Nice post.

  3. I have no problems reading posts that are okay but this post is not okay at all, this post is one of the most bad posts that I have read in my entire life. The writing here is extremely bad, the information is almost non-existent and the layout of the article is just terrible. Very disappointed after reading this.

  4. Its a great pleasure reading your post.Its full of information I am looking for and I love to post a comment that "The content of your post is awesome" Great work. Vinanza Grape
